Skelmore Heads Longbarrow

Long Barrow


The SMR lists this site as a Long Barrow although its the smallest long barrow ive ever seen! With maximum dimensions of 22M long and 13M wide by 1.5M high. Theres 2 stones that protrude out over a metre high from the barrow that really dont line up with the barrow but seem to frame a hill in the distance which imitates the shape of the barrow.
The barrow itself sits on a gently sloping plateau at the foot of Great Urswick Hillfort.
